I went back and checked into your SparkCoach "email a coach" question, and you received a response within 4 hours. (I was the one who responded, so I know I answered it :) If you still have your SparkCoach account open, you can go back and check for the answer.
I think everyone needs to find what works best for them. Some people love the SparkCoach program, and others find that using just the regular site meets their needs and is what they need to be successful. Whatever works for you is what matters most.
